Coronavirus Claims the Life of Another Young Mississippian

As the number of coronavirus cases among Mississippians younger than 30 approaches 29,000, another person in the 18-29 age group has died. State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs mentioned the death during Tuesday's briefing, saying it was someone "younger than 20". And the death was reflected in Wednesday's update. This makes 18 people in that age group who've died along with a child between the ages of 1 and 5.
